Pto stopped working today what could be the problem. No drive at all to the PTO Belt


Possible a broken shear pin in one of the pulleys.
Shear pins are made to break instead of breaking more expensive parts.

Was cutting and stop moving forward and back wards belt in good condition


Could have broken the shear pin in the drive pulley. If one of the pulleys turns when you put it in gear but the other pulley does not turn then the shear pin is broken or missing.

Husqvarna Proflex 21 just stopped engaging the blades after bump over brick. Was working fine, on starting the next cut the engine goes well, lever works but no mower blades turn when lever lowered. T


Sounds like you have broken a shear pin in the drive pulley.
Shear pins are made to break if you hit something. Other wise it would cost a lot of money to repair the damage.

I have a Yamaha ys 626 snowblower - how do I fix a non moving auger?


Most snow blowers have a "shear pin", (or roll pin) that links the auger to the drive shaft. It is there in case you strike something hard with the auger. The shear pin will break and protect the auger, the engine, and the operator. The shear pin can be purchased anyplace that services snow blowers, and it can be replaced by the owner.

Why is my John Deere L110 17 1/2 firing but not starting. It pops like a gun shot


this could be a engine timing problem this model should have a 17.5 hp kohler engine , now kohler's are now famous for having coil problems cus of overheating it and the other cause could be if you reciently shocked this engine hard (Heavy load) sometimes the flywheel pully (iron thing on top) comes loose or you shear the keyway on shaft anyways ck out my youtube video on easy way to change kohler coil for help doing this (all you need is 6 mm wrench , two hands and a playing card)

Ariens st350 snow blower wont blow snow, augers wont spin


there is a bolt that goes thru auger and spinning shaft (look for a hole where it once was) holds the augers to the spinning shafts, it is called a shear pin, it is a safety feature, and made of softer metal, so if you pick up something too hard with the auger, it wont lock up the engine, or break engine crank shaft.find an ariens repair shop to purchase the shear pin so you get the right softness of metal.

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free


Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:

Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!
